    Ahh i wouldn't go changing the way you weigh yourself hun, as with the wii it could change on many things like the surface you put it on, clothes your wearing on there etc etc, it's best just to stay with the way your weighing yourself and not change, but if you do want to use the wii fit ones, best thing to do is start all over, take the weight which the wii fit states and then carry on from there, but dont class it as a loss etc :) good luck i havent used mine in ages, but getting it out so i can start hula once again, oh and just dance 2 haha :D

    Lol i was like that hun tried loads and though woaaah ive done hr already haha it is great fun! on the sit ups one, cant remember the name of it, but you bring up your legs and arms in a shape of a V hold then release! omggg it's amazing hurts but found it did me good! ... not sure if it's there already or you may need to unlock some things first to get it! :D good luck! the numbers one is good too, you have to wiggle your hips to hit certain numbers to add up to a over all figure think starts at 10 then goes to 20 etc! great hun and good for hips :D xxx

    i want itttt! :D hehe so many great songs on it this time round too!! kesha tik tok! :D can't waitttt! haha but want it to go down in price first :( ... or wait till pay day! WOO thank god for a new job lol xxx

    The Wii said my hubby had gained 1lb but when he went to the meeting he had STS.

    Weighing once a week at the same place or on the same scales is always best, gives a more accurate reading, I think..

    I ignore what my wii says about how much I weigh as its not accurate, this week it says I have lost, gained and then lost again the same 3lbs?! It also says im 4lbs lower than my actual weight! It is great for getting you more active just not for weighing. The EA active is brilliant, personally I think its better than wii fit but I do use both cause sometimes its nice to be able to breathe while exercising!

    EA Sports Active is supposed to be like having a personal trainer right in your living-room.

    This is what they put on Amazon.co.uk EA Sports Active: Personal Trainer (Wii): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games

    "Active Fitness Made Fun & Easy— Workouts feature variety and familiar activities that target upper body, lower body as well as cardio. Start off with a run, followed by bicep curls and get your heart beating with some cardio boxing. Get fit and have fun in minutes a day!

    Benefit of a Trainer in a Box—Your trainer will be the focal point of the experience guiding you towards your own version of personal achievement. Feedback will be given throughout your workout, keeping you on track to reach your fitness goals

    New Way to Play— Slip the Nunchuk into the specially designed leg strap and hold the Wii Remote in your hand to track your movements from both your upper and lower body. A resistance band is also included to increase the intensity of exercises such as bicep curls and shoulder presses

    Workout Your Way— Circuits can be customized to your interest and fitness level. Choose your duration, intensity level & set your own goals for calories burned and workout score

    Wii Balance Board Compatibility—Get more out of your EA SPORTS Active workout using a Wii Balance Board with added functionality and physical benefits for many exercises."


    You can do 30 day challenges or put your own workouts together.

    You have a leg strap to wear which the nunchuck fits into for certain activities and a resistance band which you stand on and pull to do some of the other activities. I like making some of my own workouts to follow as I have one set up with activities in where no resistance band or leg strap are actually needed.

    You can even do stuff with someone else, and there calories burned etc are also kept, which is something I really liked.

    The boxing and baseball are my favourites (boxing is much better then on the Wii Fit)

    And if you ever get bored of this there is EA Sports more workout, and also EA Sports Active 2 (the latest edition) which is coming out sometime next month, and is said to be a much more updated version including (amongst other things) a heart rate monitor and the chance to track your progress online. Its a little more pricey then the first two though.

    Sorry for waffling on :eek: anyway its worth a try especially if your looking for something more like a proper gym workout (not sure anything could really beat a real gym). I prefer it to the Wii Fit but my hubby actually prefers the Wii Fit as you don't have to fiddle with putting leg straps on all the time and he thinks its more simple, to each there own.

    Borrowing my boyfriend's brother's wii for an unlimited time and I think my bf wants to get me one for xmas - so hopefully I can keep it 'till then.

    I really needa start doing exercise 'cause it's 3 weeks I've been on my diet now and I don't think I've lost anything :( I came off SlimFast and went onto WW and I think the whole 5 lb I lost on slimfast just went back on when I started eating (even though it was healthy!)

    I use the wii.. just dance and ea sports active.
    I dont weigh myself on it thought because unless its put in the exact same spot each time i weigh myself, it gives me a different weight.
